The goals of computational neurosciences include the production and analysis of mathematical models able to capture the physiological or cognitive properties of the brain and its constituents. Besides that, they can also be an inspiration for the experimentation of innovative data processing schemes based on the dynamics of nonlinear optical systems, which may in turn serve as extraordinary analog simulators and exploratory test benches.

The aim of this workshop, May 18-19, 2017 - Sophia Antipolis is to constitute a friendly and hopefully fruitful opportunity to connect interested members of the computational neurosciences and optical dynamics communities.

The Computational Neuroscience and Optical Dynamics workshop is put together by Romain Veltz (INRIA) and Stéphane Barland (Institut de Physique de Nice). Please get in touch by email with any of us ( and/or for any question you might have.


Note: Invited speakers do not need to register

The attendance to the workshop is free and open. However, we kindly ask you to register at the latest may 11th. Please register soon, it helps.
